Exploration

In this phase, you’ll take a more focused look at the programmes you find interesting and about which you would like to know more. You’ll collect further information about yourself as well as information about the programmes that appeal to you. You’ll make a list of the programmes or sectors that interest you.

The following texts may help you in this:

I know the direction (sectors/industry)

Discover even more about who you are:

What do you consider important for your work later? To find out, take the online work value test.
What is your learning style? To find out, take the online learning style test.

If you’re still finding it difficult to locate all the concrete studies that appeal to you, do the Icares Smart search test.

I have a list. What now?

Use the relevant institution’s website to collect more information about the programmes you’ve written down. Or read the programme brochures: you can often request these via Internet or collect them at an Open Day. Brochures and the initial information about studies on websites are often intended as orientation resources: they still don’t give you a complete impression of a programme. If you are considering a study, the deepen understanding phase is the next step.
